Announcing the 2016 Selected Artists

Thank you again to all the artists around the world who submitted proposals for the 2016 Cheng Long Wetlands International Environmental Art Project. As you know we had 178 entries from artists in 54 different countries. It has been a difficult job to just choose 5 artists from so many good applications. We hope many of the artists who applied in 2016 will apply again for 2017.

We are happy to announce the 5 selected artists:

Amarsaikhan Namsraijav (Amar) from Mongolia
Amarsaikhan Namsraijav (Amar, 蒙古)
Amar sketch 2 carts in wetlands

Claudia Aranovich from Argentina
Claudia Aranovich(阿根廷)

Elena Redaelli from Italy living in Norway
Elena Redaelli (生於義大利/現居挪威)

Justin Tyler Tate from Canada living in Finland
Justin Tyler Tate (生於加拿大/現居芬蘭)
Chris Lee (Kuei-chih) from Taiwan

The sketch for each of the 5 selected artists is posted here. But, it is not just the sketch that must fit the theme and the requirements of this project. This year all the artworks will be in the wetlands nature preserve area, and artists must use all biodegradable materials (either natural or recycled) that can go back to nature over time and not harm the environment of the wetlands (air, soil, plants, wildlife, water)…and still last through wind, rain and hot sun for about one year. Later we will make another post to explain more about what these artists will be creating and why they were selected this year.

We look forward to welcoming these artists in Cheng Long from April 7 to May 2!
